How To Eat An Anti-Inflammatory Diet


Inflammation is a common medical condition which is currently on the rise. It is often a side effect of food that is consumed to which the body is allergic. In severe cases, inflammation leads to the development of heart disease, cancers and other medical conditions.

Thereby, it is essential to treat and manage inflammation before it becomes chronic and difficult to handle. The key to controlling the inflammatory response of your body lies in taking into account the overall health of your body. Targeting the overall well-being of your system and aiming to find the root cause of it, rather than fighting the symptoms of inflammation.

In the modern times, women are often caught between pressures at work and taking care of their domestic chores. In this melee of these activities, women do not pay attention to the food that they are consuming. Eating out has become a common trend and this leads to the consumption of unhealthy food. It is essential that women focus on their diet.

Partaking an anti-inflammatory diet is one of the most common responses to fight inflammation. Eating the right kind of balanced food invigorates your system and cools off the inflammatory response of your body. Fruits, vegetables, nuts and seafood are some of the food items that thwart the inflammatory response.

The goal is also to reduce the free-radical production in the body. If left uncontrolled, free radicals contribute to the production of toxins, which are harmful to the body. Certain foods like ginger, garlic, oregano and a few spices contain ingredients that help in limiting the free radicals in the body.

Another important measure is to remove foods that contain additives from your diet. Certain foods like trans fats increases your body’s inflammatory response. Sugars and foods that contain gluten are also the major contributors to inflammation. Women often tend to crave foods that are high in sugar content and fats. Especially around their menstrual cycles, which trigger bouts of Pre-Menstrual Syndrome and related depression, women often take recourse to eating fatty foods as mood-lifters.

These are often masked in various forms in processed foods. If these foods are eliminated from the system, chances of developing inflammation are low. A reduction of Omega-3 fatty acids also leads to inflammation. Modern diet followed by women contains alarmingly low levels of Omega-3. The most common way of taking Omega-3 in your diet is to consume capsules which are easily available.

Women often up their consumption of calcium, especially around menopause to help their changing bodies. However, certain women are highly allergic to major sources of calcium like milk and other dairy products. If they are able to identify this aspect and eliminate them from their diet, their bodies will not develop inflammation. The identification of this aspect is a key revelation for many women.

This is the most tried and tested way of treating inflammation. This is the natural way of responding to your body’s response. However, if your condition is severe or manifests over a long period of time, you might need to consult a doctor and take medications.

    inflammation is a silent killer really I think. When we suffer from inflammation it is destroying our body’s. I think that what we should do is start an alkalizing diet plan.

    I Notice that anti-inflammatory diet is ideal for overall good health. Proponents of the diet say it can reduce heart disease risk, keep existing cardiac problems in check, reduce blood triglycerides and blood pressure, and soothe tender and stiff arthritic joints..

    I think one should always listen to their body. As long as you pay attention to how your body behaves, you will always know when and what to eliminated. My biggest inflammator is carbs, so I’m really working on cutting them and sugar down…so hard though :((

    I went through a phase where I thought all fats were bad for me and I reduced the amount of Omega 3 fatty acids to a minimum. My skin was the first to suffer as it turned slightly gray and it was super dry, no amount of cream was able to fix it. Make sure you have a balanced diet and include foods like flax seeds, walnuts, salmon or shrimp in your diet.
